William Lane Craig’s philosophy – the condensed version

PZ Myers can certainly find the right turn of phrase – or cartoon. I thought this one in his post Plaintive logic made a necessary point.

What is it with philosophers of religion and syllogisms? They seem to think that simply listing their (usually faulty) premise and a conclusion somehow provides a water-tight deduction. Good enough to prove that their loving god created the universe, was also responsible for morality and fine tuning! Apparently also responsible for the logic they use (which is convenient).

Or are they just demonstrating they can count to 3 (or 5)?

One response to “William Lane Craig’s philosophy – the condensed version

  1. I ran into this form of argument yesterday when a friend agree that schools should not keep Bible verses on their wall but felt that people are stupid to object to them.

    Ends up, he just does not like confrontation, it makes him sad, so action against what he even feels not right, is to be condemned because he wouldn’t do it.
